The World Series Triathlon takes place in Leeds this weekend, as elite and amateur triathletes alike take to the course for yet another unforgettable event on the sporting calendar.
2016’s event saw 80,000 spectators line the streets of Leeds in support of the athletes, and this is to be repeated this Saturday and Sunday as many of Team GB’s Rio Olympians will be competing, including Leeds’s very own Alistair and Jonny Brownlee.
Events are scheduled at different times throughout the weekend, and are to take place mainly around Roundhay Park and in the city centre. Click here to view the route map and here for details of the best spots to spectate.
For students of Leeds who may also be planning on moving out of accommodation this weekend, click here for information about road closures and diversions, as traffic will be busy and access around popular student areas including Moortown, Headingley, Burley and the city centre will be limited.
Good luck to everybody competing this weekend. Yorkshire is proud to host yet another incredible international sporting event.
